Causes hypertension: High salt intake can in the long run possibly lead to hypertension. Long standing hypertension or high blood pressure will eventually lead to diseases such as heart disease or strokes. It is important to have a healthy lifestyle by reducing salt intake, fatty foods intake and exercise regularly.Ath.
